Still Corners - 12.3_edited.png

Still Corners have released Dream Talk, their sixth studio album. 

"Some artists create an album for themselves, and others produce beautiful moments that stick with listeners throughout their lives. That is what Still Corners have done with this body of work." Clash Magazine

"Subtly perfecting their sound for nearly 15 years now, Still Corners continue to combine transportive guitars, lush atmospherics, versatile rhythms, and warm synths with Tessa’s ethereal vocals and windswept melodies in magnetic fashion." KEXP

"The entire album is more of an immersive experience than just a record. From the opening track to the last note on the album, the incredible guitar work of Greg Hughes is prevalent and strong throughout, with a notable solo in ‘Lose More Slowly’, which is a beautiful piece. The haunting vocals of Tessa and wonderfully layered instrumentals make for a song that is captivating and definitely one that I will be eager to listen to again. It’s kind of addictive." - Music News Monthly

 

"Murray and multi-instrumentalist Greg Hughes combine perfectly on shoegaze-pop-meets-gothic-Americana" - Scottish Daily Express

 

"Dream Talk is the duo’s sixth album and they are expert drivers behind the wheel of a pristinely maintained ’60s convertible, piloting under a beautiful desert sky full of stars." Brooklyn Vegan

 

"Tessa Murray’s captivating vocals glide across a variety of beautifully crafted soundscapes inspired by her own nocturnal musings and fragmented dreams...Greg Hughes’ production adds a glow of iridescent moonlit brilliance." Under the Radar

 

“At times romantic, swooning and mysterious this is a yearning piece of stylish dream pop ripe for a wider audience and will be perfect for the summer (if it ever comes) as we sway to it as the sun goes down on a festival evening.” Next to the Aisle 

 

"Dream Talk is an alluring reminder of the power of visions and fantasies from a group that's mastered how to bring them to life." All Music

Still Corners RELEASE TODAY IS THE DAY

The season is once again changing and with it comes a poignant new single from Still Corners.  "Today is the Day" radiates the warmth of the first days of spring, a song about change being the only constant in life and seizing the moment while you can.  Written in Woodstock, NY and featuring acoustic guitar, bass guitar and a beautiful orchestral ending, Today is the Day glides across a wide open sky and invites the listener to live for today.

Tessa Murray says "You have all sorts of connections with songs you write but some seem to connect on a deeper level for whatever reason and this song does that for us.  I think there were two sides to this song, one is that we wanted to say something about seizing the moment as life is precious and tomorrow is not promised and that is echoed in the chorus, Today is the Day etc.  On the other side there's this connection to nature and that's peppered throughout the lyrics as well.  Yeats once said, "The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper".  I really believe that and when we were out filming this video by all the trees and birds and just hearing that acoustic guitar out there, it felt ancient and old and it was something I had to be reminded of.  Sitting there by the brook I thought maybe I'll be lucky and catch a glimpse of something deeper."

Still Corners Share OFFICIAL VIDEO FOR CRYSTAL BLUE

Still Corners have released the official video for Crystal Blue, the third single from Dream Talk directed by Lucy Dyson. Commenting on the collaboration, Lucy said:

"Crystal Blue is my fourth music video for Still Corners, and as always, it’s so lovely to get to develop a visual concept for their music, and this song has so many gorgeous elements; it sounds like the sea and a summer breeze, and the peacefulness I feel when snorkelling (is there a more peaceful creature than the seahorse?). So, working with the beautiful 8mm footage they provided me with, and Tessa’s lovely silk shirt as the perfect colour pallet, I created a multifaceted video piece bringing together the elements that the music evokes for me; the gentle sway of a coral reef, mottled Neptune hues, and the mesmerising motions of seagulls hovering to the music carried by the wind." 

Still Corners Share CRYSTAL BLUE

Still Corners have released Crystal Blue, the third single from Dream Talk. Crystal Blue is a torch song about two lovers separated by the sea, dreaming of reuniting one day.  Hours go by, day and night, the breeze touches their skin, the waves become their only friends as they wait to meet again under the same moon.  A soft drum beat, congas and a solitary marimba patter away as Tessa Murray asks, "Do fishes sleep, in the ocean blue?  Do you dream of me like I dream of you?".  A crystal clear guitar solo whisks the listener to the far side of the world as the couple head off to a place they've never heard of just to see each other again.

Still Corners release The Dream

"Are you sure that we are awake? It seems to me that yet we sleep, we dream." This quote from Shakespeare is the central theme for Still Corners new sonic masterpiece "The Dream", the latest single from their upcoming 6th Album "Dream Talk". Shakers and a lone rhythm guitar drop into a fast paced beat of bass and drums, gradually revealing the melodic voice of Tessa Murray on a train travelling at speed through a desert at night - "We are on a night train, heading to the east end". Shifting synths combine with a climatic build of congas gradually revealing a beautiful and epic tale of a "dream within a dream". The song finishes off with a crystalline guitar solo from her partner in crime Greg Hughes. This is Still Corners at their most seductive and romantic.

 

The video is based on the duo's deep love of mystery novels and cosy crime fiction. Tessa Murray plays a new character called "Penelope Braithwaite" as she investigates the "Mystery of the Repeating Dream". Folks from the fictitious town of "Reverwood, Sussex" have been falling into a repeating dream trap, when they wake up they realise they are in fact in the same dream. Penelope arrives at a mysterious house to investigate. Does she solve the mystery or is she too stuck in a looping dream? Beautifully filmed in England by the band themselves and featuring steam trains and a dilapidated mansion set on vast gardens, this is a detective story not to be missed!

Still Corners NEW ALBUm MARCH 2024

Dream Talk type 2.jpeg

On Friday 5th April 2024, Still Corners will release their sixth album, “Dream Talk”.  Beautifully arranged, elegant and wistful, Dream Talks is a set of ten carefully crafted classic songs.   From the autumnal opener "Today is the Day" to the hot summer night finale of "Turquoise Moon", Still Corners have created a sound that is focused, stylish and seductive.

 

Tessa Murray says, "The genesis for a lot of these songs came from dreams.  Every night I would write down the dreams I could remember.  While recording I would pull out my book of dreams and sing over various looped phrases Greg had been working on, the repetitive nature of the looping and singing almost felt like going into a trance.  A lot of the songs came from that process, it was fun and what I thought were sort of ramblings ended up surprising us with their various meanings and imagery."

 

The album was written in various places, the south of France, East Sussex, UK and Woodstock, New York.  Murray continues, “The songs came together quickly and being able to write from anywhere kept up our momentum".

 

Produced by Greg Hughes at the band’s studio in Woodstock, New York, Greg says "We experimented with various things like different mics, amps and effects before committing to anything.  Everything was mixed analog through our new SSL console, there's a gleam to the sound"

A special ‘indie’ version of Dream Talk is available to pre-order on limited edition coke bottle green vinyl with a poster and download code and CD from select independent record shops direct from us.

LISTEN TO SECRET WORLD

The first single to be released from Dream Talk, Secret World, is about obsession.

 

Murray writes “Sometimes the thought of someone, wanting to know them, get into their world is dangerous. The real person doesn’t matter anymore, just the fantasy of them, which is totally wrong but feels right."
